This study provides a comprehensive picture of the intergenerational acceptance of violence under the deep-rooted mechanism of patriarchal culture, which manipulated the traditional role of men and women in a religious context. Qualitative research strategies, emic approach, and inductive reasoning method enlisted the causes, consequences, and rehabilitation strategies of domestic abuse among women who resided in the shelter home. Demographic characteristics of the participants, their parent's family profiles, and their spouse's family backgrounds were added to the existing literature. It helped to understand how the systematic deprivation of women's inheritance rights from intergenerational levels with the mutual consensuses of the parents, families, society, and even witnesses by the religious leaders were normalized. Expecting dowry instead of dower, "Haq Meher," and crossing the women's rights (mentioned in the Nikah Nama) at the time of marital contract without permission from the women were depicted as oblige pictures of the collectivistic culture. Provided that the incompetency of the legal system facilitated honor killing and failed to punish it as a crime instead to considered it a private family matter. Sugar-coated, misinterpreted religious beliefs of polygamy and the superior nature of men justified the oppression based on gender violence resulting in the phenomena of home-to-shelter homes among women to escape from domestic violence.

Key words: From home to shelter home, domestic violence, intergenerational violence
